(FYI- sticker in your engine compartment should have this info on it. Up on the firewall on the drivers side. If I remember correctly).

try autolite 3924, regular reach, old-school style spark plugs.

the long-reach plugs recommended in most books are TOO hot of plug (rough idle misfire) this includes autolite 985 and champion R12YC plugs...those are all long reach and if you have a rough idle when motor is warmed up...caused by too hot heat range long-reach plugs.

go to store and look at all these plugs...you'll see what i mean.
